15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Grand Teton Stars and Wildflowers
I went on a spontaneous solo road trip to the Grand Tetons and got in after sunset. I found a spot just outside of the park to stay the night and wandered out to the middle of this wildflower field, found a nice spot to lay down and fell asleep. Around midnight I woke up and after my eyes adjusted to the dark I could not believe how beautiful everything was. The stars were so bright that I could still see the fields of wildflowers and the Teton mountain range. I sat thinking about how I could possibly capture the scene.
